Hi everyone. We've received a request from St Leonard's Hospice that is well worth sharing around. They are looking for runners to fundraise for them at 3 York events this year. See their message below for more info and if you would like to take part or would like more details please contact their Events Fundraiser, Jasmine Rodgers. firstname.lastname@example.org or 01904 777 777.
It is great to virtually meet you. I am the Events Fundraiser here at St Leonard's Hospice, we provide care and support for terminally ill people, and people with life limiting illnesses.
I am currently promoting the York 10k, Yorkshire 10 Mile and the Yorkshire Marathon, as we are looking for runners who are up for a challenge, who will let us be their reason to run, in order to raise awareness and funds for St Leonard’s Hospice.
We have to raise £5.8 million per year to provide the care we do. We provide care for free, but it’s not free to provide. During the year ended 31 March 2021, St Leonard’s cared for 250 in patients and their families; with our Hospice@Home service receiving over 660 referrals during the year.
We are currently looking for individuals or groups to sign up to one of these challenges to help support our Hospice whilst achieving a personal fitness goal.
